Last Friday forenoon Wesley BUCKNER, aged fifty-eight years, seven months and twenty-six days, died of heart trouble at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert TALLEY, in Highland Township.

The deceased, accompanied by his son, Harry, had gone to White River, one mile west of Calvertville to “run a trot line” which they had set in the river. As Mr. BUCKNER neared the bank about 9 a.m. he was stricken and fell from the boat, but his son rescued him and took him in a wagon to the TALLEY home, where he died within an hour. The body was prepared for burial at the TALLEY home and was not taken to his own home. The funeral was held at the Concord Church at Calvertville, Saturday, conducted by Rev. Henry FLORY. Interment in Dave BLAND Cemetery.

The deceased was a good citizen, a loyal Republican and a kind neighbor. He had a large circle of friends and relatives. He was twice married. His first wife was Miss Anna M. COWAN. She died in 1891. Two sons, Freeland and Harry, were born to this union. The former died in 1908 while the latter survives his parents. The second wife was Miss Laura MCDANIEL, who with one child, a daughter, survives.
